  1. Hi Jim & Michelle. I just saw a thread where you built a cockpit table using corian. It looks fantastic and was wondering if you could share the dimensions, thickness, how it is attached, etc? My original wood table is too heavy and is looking pretty bad these days. Thanks

  2. OUR 350 is a play on Sienfield yada yada hence "Yachata Yachata
  3. We love life on the hook on Texoma. We have our favorite coves to sleep in. One thing the that was hard to get used to is trusting your anchor. Our boat has a plow type anchor and the more pull on the anchor the deeper the plow goes. Even when the wind changes at night and our boat swings 180 degrees our anchor has always held. On the anchor alarm always set anchor first let the boat adjust to the wind and then set alarm and allow for the amount of road you have out on the anchor. We like our small trips on the lake leaving on thursday evening and returning on sunday to our marina with no food left over. My wife has gotten real good at meal planning for our trips. Its getting to be the time of the years we really enjoy being on the lake after the Labor Day weekend temps start coming down and the boating crowd goes home. Just a few fishermen to contend with. Grilling some steaks ,chill watching some movies, open the hatch and sleep the nite away. Love the Fall…...
  4. nice in the 100's were getting this weekend.. .
  5. just got done rebuilding ours. Replaced duck valves(4) plus the plunger and diaphram. and a seal kit. The duck valves should be replaced every 3 years they said(vacu flush people) we have 9 years on ours. plunger replaced with a new up grade which was smaller than the original few phone calls but its a well now mama is happy.
  6. we have friends that come and visit some for a day and some for the weekend. we have a cabin so theres no sleep overs an the boat. But the best is just the wife and i + two Schnauzers. And now with Labor Day behind us we have Texoma all to our own. Dinner in a cove,some vino, music.... turn off gen and open hatches sleep the nights away......

  13. I am in need of someone to come to our dock on Lake Texoma to test for electricity in the water. Our 3 yr old outdrives are getting ate up by corrosion. We had the drives serviced recently and there was way to much corrosion on the alum. drive, stainless parts of the drive, the underwaterlites brass covered and the thru hull fitting for the generator almost corroded shut. The mechainc checked the bonding system on the engines and the out drives all are hooked up properly. I have a zinc fish that hangs between my drives and is covered with corrosion. the zincs that ore on the outdrives are not that bad hardly any corrosion at all on them. The Corps "said they could find nothing in the water" we will pay for any help.... thanks, Jim Young 405-642-4796
